    Man, that's a striking colour scheme. I was expecting ARC-ZSII to come first seeing how difficult it is to come up a name for the 'Z' lineups.

    It seems that this racquet adopts many features from NR-ZSP (minus the longer shaft & some materials used to construct the shaft/head). Most likely the previously mentioned 'head heavier than the VT-ZF' comes from wider head. Getting it for the looks?; Hell yes.

    I am always confused with some of Yonex’s choice of wording. Can anyone tell me how does the “ultra slim long shaft” compared to the “extra slim shaft”? I’m asking this because the NZSP is labeled as having the ultra but the upcoming VZFII is labelled as “extra slim” but it is said to be the thinnest ever.

    In addition to that, having own the NZSP, I could not find any difference in the length of the shaft compared to my old MusclePower despite the “ultra slim long shaft” thing. Am I missing something?

    just played a few hours of casual games with the z speed last week, with zymax67 at 24x26lbs. it's an awesome racket, very flexible and very powerful. since i'm used to using the z slash and a nanoray300, i'm more or less used to a smaller head frame!! i love this racket, and its flashy bright orange color, yay!!!

    I tried out Z-Speed today, mostly smashing and clears as well as backhand clears.

    The racket wasn't as head heavy as I thought, when I was smashing, the racket really cuts through the air really nicely, just like the Z-Slash, I felt the Z-Speed feels much like a Z-Slash which cuts through the air just as well. I didn't feel that the Z-Speed increased the speed of my smash, when I was smashing with my normal racket (Z-Force) it felt pretty much the same

    Honestly, you will have to try the racket out for yourself, I personally didn't like it as much as my Z-Force. However this is my preference, you may like it.

    Yes, I definitely will try it before I buy but also need to know what other thinks as well.

    i think zsp is a good racket in limited ways . zsp does not suit every play style. zsp is reasonably fast, powerful and accurate. this combination makes it a good single racket. however, zsp lakes of feelings, and a little slow for doubles.
    so, in doubles zsp is mor e suitable if your style is more conservative. it does not mean that zsp is worse. i win games with zsp as well as fb. just that fb is more enjoyable and makes top plays much easier while zsp mostly win games with powerful clears and other combined attacks which is a dull stradegy.

    How about NR800 compare to ZSpeed? Anyone tried them before?

    ZSpeed is really a nice racket to play with. Very good maneuverability in double and powerful in the smashing. Shots are accurate on the net and baseline corner. The head is not really too heavy for me. Feel is solid on my hand.

    The only thing which ZSpeed challenges me is the smaller head frame. There were some mishits in my 3 hours game time using it since the sweet spot is small. But it is getting better.

    A new discovery to me in Yonex since I have been liking the Victor rackets so far.

    It is a joy using ZSpeed!!

    A warning to those who wanna buy ZSP
    I dunno if this applies to every country.
    But, in Taiwan, ZSP's balance point seems to have a large variance.
    Generally Yonex rackets have good QC and have similar weight and weight distribution.
    Therefore, I didn't check the balance point of my 3u ZSP while picking.

    The end result is that I feel my zsp is slow while some ppl say it's fast.
    Then I checked my ZSP's balance point. Wtf, it's 323mm from buttom of handle.
    My ZF2 is 320mm from handle.
    Given that ZSP is 5 grams heavier than ZF2, no wonder I feel ZSP slow.
    After that I asked ppl for their ZSP's balance point.
    The result is mixed. The lightest is 293mm and mine being the heaviest.
    The quantity distribution seems not like a normal distribution.
    Therefore,
    before buying a zsp, do check it's balance point and weight.
    (at least in Taiwan)

    Sigh to my super head-heavy ZSP.(well, at least it smashs really fast.)

    Just wondering, how did you measure them? Did you remove the original grip? Were they strung or unstrung when you took the measurement?
